Constellations Apartments, Belle Plagnein , France
Holiday Overall Rating
So what's it like?
The charming and modern Constellations Apartments are a great option for doorstep skiing in the beautiful village of Belle Plagne. You can ski directly onto the piste from the residences, and there’s easy access to all the eateries and entertainment that the village has to offer.
Each apartment is in a traditional Savoyard style, decked out with wood-cladded feature walls and simple, warm textures. They’re based inside huge chalet-style buildings with slate rooves that perfectly blend into the landscape. What’s more, all apartments have south-west or south-east facing balconies – so lots of sun all day long.
Just to take the strain off the wallet, every apartment is also fitted with a kitchenette, so you can whip up a meal for family or friends during your stay. There’s a supermarket only 2 minutes away so you don’t have to go far for all the ingredients. Then, settle down with a hot chocolate and spend the evening relaxing in your apartment. Cleaning is also included (other than the kitchen), so you don’t have to worry about leaving the apartment spotless the day you leave.
If you fancy exploring the other areas that make up La Plagne, then there’s a free shuttle bus to Plagne Centre and the other villages every 15 minutes. Here you can pop in to a bar for an evening drink, or treat yourself to a meal in a local restaurant. However, if you’d rather make your holiday as stress-free as possible, then opt for our half-board upgrade, which includes breakfast and a specially designed 3-course set menu each evening.
2-for-1 lift passes
The Constellations Apartments are situated in Belle Plagne, one of the villages that make up La Plagne. You can access the village via the lift in the Pegase building. The nearest ski lift is the Roche de Mio gondola, which is a 4-minute walk or a 1-minute ski from the apartment. From here, you can access the range of spectacular glacier runs or, in the evenings, you can take the gondola down to Plagne Bellecôte to go to a bar or two, or to treat yourself to some fondue. This gondola is open until midnight, so you don’t have to worry about rushing back early. However, if you don’t want to risk it, then you’ll find bars, restaurants and bowling in Belle Plagne, too.

When you arrive in Belle Plagne, the coach isn’t able to take you right up to the door of the Constellations Apartments due to height hestrictions. Therefore, when you arrive in resort, you'll be dropped off close by. From here, you'll head off on foot to the Constellations Apartments, an 8-minute walk away. Make sure you wear some sturdy shoes and warm clothing – it can get a bit snowy underfoot.
